About this title:

Synopsis:

From the Greek victory over Persian forces on the field of Plataea to the Athenian blockade of the rebel city of Potidaea―key events in the Persian and Peloponnesian wars, respectively―the half-century of Greek history known as the pentecontaetia is an era for which sources are few and interpretation is controversial. Historian E. Badian brings together six essays―one new and five revised for this edition―that shed new light on this key period.

Review:

Badian not only attempts to reconstruct the often intractable history of this period, but he also provides the reader with important guidelines on how to read Thucydides' crucial narrative on the Pentecontaetia... The whole book is a delight for anyone with an interest in antiquity, as it shows Badian doing what he does best, namely, utilizing the ancient sources by asking questions of them that had not been asked before.
